On sport lead I think just past the first bolt. D...


This is the first (leftmost) bolted line on the cliff as you approach from the road. The crux comes right off the deck. A quality line and good warm-up for the 10s to the right. Adding a couple pieces to your rack will lessen any slightly runout sections.

This route is highly visible from the road, so it would be nice to replace the bright red webbing anchor with something less conspicuous. I'll do it next time I'm in the area unless someone beats me to it.


5 bolts, a light rack for optional gear placements.
